The carpet in the pool room has been replaced and it is a request that there be no eating or drinking in the room. Please do your drinking and eating in designated areas of our facility. We try and keep all of our center clean at all times.Our recreational areas such as the exercise room, card rooms, sewing room and the pool room are for fun, workouts, fellowship and more with other members. We (the officers and Board of Directors) are requesting there be no food or drinking in the above rooms and also in our thrift store area. The main hall area has plenty of tables and chairs for everyone to have their breakfast, lunch, snacks and etc. It is very costly every time we have to have the carpet cleaned and our floors stripped and waxed. Everyone’s co-operation and understanding with the Boards request is greatly appreciate. Please remember that the pool room is for all of our membership to enjoy and all are requested to assist with helping to protect the tables as well as other items in the room, the pool tables are not to be used as a sitting item. Chairs are provided for sitting. For those who do not want to assist with these request from the Officers and Board of Directors ,they will possibly be facing suspension due to not complying with rules and regulations for the upkeep and etc. that is provided by the membership dues and fund raising events. We work very hard and are very proud for all seniors to have a nice and clean place to come and enjoy all that Wesco has to offer and we plan to try and keep it that way. The pool tables have been recovered as well . In all that has been done for the activity pool room, it has been quite costly this time to have everything repaired, replaced and put back in place .
